Lock, Stock, and History
The Mosquefal M968
Like many nations after World War II, Brazil sought to modernize their military and adopt the 7.62NATO cartridge.  They officially adopted the FAL, but also like many other nations, could not acquire enough FAL’s to completely equip their military forces. 
As a result the Mosqufal M968 Mauser was adopted.  It was a modified Brazilian Mauser, the most important modification was that it was chambered for 7.62NATO, so that its ammunition was interchangeable with the FAL.  It also had a lighter stock, the iron sights were replaced with rings sights, the bolt was turned down, and a flash suppressor was added.  These rifles were mostly used to arm police and auxiliary military units.
